Our mission with Savvy

We put together a little mission statement to remind ourselves what we’re all about and to help navigate the decisions we make as we continue to build Savvy.

It brings up something I’ve come to realise in the last couple of years – an awareness of how temporary our work in this industry is. It can be frustrating to come from a place of knowing something you have spent countless hours on may be thrown out in the very near future. I’m sure I’m not alone – it’s natural to want your work to last and be worthwhile – to add up to something meaningful and complete. I recognise though that this process is important, essential even to make the next steps we are […]
